Extreme Animal Transport – Camels

EPISODE SYNOPSIS

John runs Red Sun Camels in Broome, a tourist town in the north of Western Australia where visitors can experience a sunset camel ride along the famous Cable Beach. As his business expands, he needs seven more camels to add to the group, to enable his other camels to rest. But camels don’t come ready to be ridden by humans. Without extensive training they can be very dangerous, and the risk of them kicking a tourist could mean serious injury or even death. On the other side of Australia, 5000kms away, Peter has been commissioned by John to train and deliver seven wild camels. Known throughout Australia as the camel whisperer, Peter’s love of the animal is evident. Each of his seven beloved camels has a unique personality. It's a four-day transport. Due to Australia’s strict biosecurity laws, the camels have to pass a quarantine checkpoint at Kununurra, on the border of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Clair is the government vet who will inspect each of the animals and the truck which has to be washed out to get rid of any faeces and hay. In the 40-degree heat, Donnie hasn’t done a good enough job, so he has to start again. After the final check of the paperwork, they are set to get back on the road, for the last leg of the 2000km journey through the picturesque Kimberly region of outback Australia.
